I'm going to be making a survival island map. I need ideas on what I should do, what it should be about, ect.

Surely if you are making a map you should know yourself what it should be, unless you are just looking for what people want, not inspiration?

maybe use the piston mod and you can create things like trap doors, hidden stairs, bridges, and many other things that will make it better

I'll give you ideas i just hope you know there already is a survival island.
One question before i list some ideas: Do you want the map to have a storyline or is it just a survival island?

I'll just make up a quick backstory when I'm done. And there are many survival islands.

Well then i guess you can just have a limited amount of resources example 2 trees, far away from land mainly sand on the island.
Make the island fairly small, make areas based off the storyline ie. Find the buried treasure.
If you have goals there should be main areas dedicated to those goals.
If you want to make it super hard make it so the water is lava :tongue:
Make underground mazes etc.
If your going to make any other maps in the future i would really like to help you build them, preferably on a server and not transferring the map back and forth.

I would love to do that, but I'm too laggy to play on servers. Anyways, what can I use to change all land around the island to water? MCEdit?

For a "Survival Island", I personally think it would be cool to create some casual buildings whether houses or massive structures and then completely destroy them with large amounts of TNT.

This would create a "ghost town" effect which would be a great scene for a survival island.

Considering it is a survival map you want (i'm assuming survival and not challenge like the rest) you could have them play on hard mode. It could also have one tree and you have bare resources surrounding you.
EDIT: Never mind, i should've read the thread, didn't see the other post.

I wanted to do this too. If you ever watched the Yogscast's survival island, I want to do something like that.
